Following on from the previous very successful conferences, the LSCT Conference 2018 to be held at Butlin’s Bognor Regis will be the 5th two-day event that Westway CT will be hosting, on behalf of the members of London Strategic CT Forum.
The two-day conference is attended by staff and volunteers of Community Transport organisations (CTs), and exhibitors from all over the country. Visitors take advantage of the opportunity for self-development, learning and networking.
New and repeat delegates and exhibitors are welcome, and this year the invitation is open to CT’s far and wide, not just those based in London.
Discussions are relevant, stimulating and relate to community transport. Topics in previous years have included Social Value, Electric Vehicles, The Olympic Collaboration, Zero Hours Contracts, Governance, Economic Cost of Loneliness, Risk Registers, Diversity, Partnership Working, Succession Planning and How to make politics work for you. This year the central theme for the conference will be; How CT delivers Social Value and how this is recognised in a meaningful way. There will be a debate about what a new CT operating permit system may look like and what differentiates CTs from commercial operators.
This year CTs from more rural areas may want to join the discussion about the recently proposed changes to the guidance in CT section 19 permit operations, that will impact on many, if not all CTs. (See more about these proposed changes on the Mobility Matters campaign website).
The exhibition of suppliers relevant to the CT Sector will be supported again by various companies and will provide a chance to talk with Minibus Converters, Insurance Brokers, Solicitors, Booking Software Developers and many more.
For those of you who have attended in previous years, you will know that Butlins at Bognor Regis has excellent accommodation and conference facilities.
If you are interested in attending the conference, getting involved in the discussions, and meeting fellow CT supporters, come along to this year’s event at Butlin’s Bognor Regis on the 21st-22nd March 2018.
